Wizz Air Abu Dhabi to expand network in Eastern Europe

The carrier will start twice-weekly flights to both Tirana and Sarajevo this autumn

Wizz Air Abu Dhabi has announced that it will begin flights to two new destinations in Eastern Europe, Tirana in Albania and Sarajevo in Bosnia & Herzegovina.

Flights to Tirana will commence on 11 September 2021 and will operate twice a week on Tuesdays and Saturdays. The Sarajevo route will be in service from 3 October 2021 and will operate twice a week on Wednesdays and Sundays.

Albania is currently on Abu Dhabi’s green list for travel. Vaccinated travellers from green list countries are exempt from mandatory quarantine measures after landing in Abu Dhabi, but will be required to undergo PCR testing upon arrival at Abu Dhabi International Airport, as well as another PCR test on day six.

Unvaccinated travellers arriving from green list countries are also exempt from mandatory quarantine but will also need to undergo PCR testing on arrival, as well as two further PCR tests on day six and 12.

Currently, passengers arriving from Bosnia & Herzegovina will have to self-isolate for 10 days, undergo PCR testing on arrival, as well as two further PCR tests on day six and 12.

PCR tests in Abu Dhabi have just been capped at AED65.


The addition of Tirana and Sarajevo two cities increase Wizz Air Abu Dhabi’s total network routes to 31.

Wizz Air Abu Dhabi managing director Kees Van Schaick said: “When we launched at the start of 2021, we committed to rapid expansion of our network, as well as providing viable and ultra-low fare travel for UAE residents and inbound tourists. With 31 routes now on our roster, we continue to deliver on this promise and look forward to welcoming even more travellers on board our aircraft.”

Tickets for these routes are already on sale on the airline’s portals with fares starting from AED179 (US$49) for a one-way ticket.
